LM5 Power is an embedded platform with integrated Ethernet, USB, KNX/EIB, CAN FT, DALI, Serial interfaces. LM allows to use it as cross-standard gateway, logic engine, visualization platform, IP Router. Scripting templates provides user-friendly, flexible configuration interface and integration with cloud/web services, 3rd party devices. Via applying custom scripts LM can simultaneously act as thermostat, security panel, lighting controller, etc. LogicMachine application store and external app development possibility allows to extend device functionality and adjust to a specific market segment. Further, LM5 supports iOS Siri and Google Voice control via native apps available in App Store and Google Play.
In comparison with DALI built in other LM5 devices (like DW1, DR, RD), you can use it as DALI Multi-master. The commissioning software for LM currently supports DALI1 only but we have plans to add DALI2 later. We support Date Type 8 (color temperatures) for DALI lighting + you can send and receive 1/2/3 byte telegrams.
